Cardinals closer Jason Motte has agreed to a $1.95 million, one-year contract after helping St. Louis win the World Series.

Motte made $435,000 last year. He had asked for $2.4 million in arbitration and had been offered $1.5 million.

He can earn an additional $75,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 each for 50, 55 and 60 games finished.
